The Embassy of Colombia is on the Paseo de la Reforma at #412. The building is almost on the Glorieta de Diana the Huntress.
The embassy occupies the 19th floor of the Corporativo Reforma Diana, sometimes called the Torre Reforma 412. The building was built between 2010 and 2013.
The history of the two countries diplomatic relations begins way back in 1823 once both countries had secured independence from Spain. At that time, Mexico and Colombia actually shared a border. Today that’s the border between Costa Rica and Panama.
The two countries, along with Chile and Peru, founded the Pacific Trade Alliance. They’ve signed many other bilateral agreements, too. Among these are a Free Trade Agreement, an Extradition Treaty, an agreement for cultural and educational exchange, and mulitple treaties to avoid tax evasion and prevent theft, extraction and trafficking in cultural goods.
In 2017, Mexico became the third biggest source of international investment in Colombia. Those investments have only accelerated as the Pacific Trade Alliance. Today, in Colombia, you’ll find such Mexican companies as América Móvil, Cemex, Grupo Bimbo, TV Azteca, and Femsa.
Mexico maintains an important embassy in Bogota. The Colombian embassy here is supported by consulates in both Cancun and Guadalajara. While all of these offices are dedicated mainly to providing help to citizens with passports, visas, apostilles, etc., they also play an increasingly important role in cultural outreach to their host cities and countries.
